Borderlands 3 Action Skill Concept

Blink: When ready, the character gains three teleport charges. Each teleport will go around 10 feet.

No duration, each charge is used up instantly and after the three are used up, the cooldown will start.

Perks could possibly change how many teleports you have, like adding two more teleports, or lettng you only have one but gain a bonus for that one. Possibly having an explosion occur where you teleport to, or the teleport goes up to twice the distance.

This was originally supposed to be an entire character concept, but I couldn’t think up the entire thing.

Nice idea!! I definitely think this should be an action skill for one of the characters in Borderlands 3!! Although, how would all the skill trees go? It would be hard to come up with mostly upgrades for the action skill (some of course being fire rate, reload speed, etc) Otherwise, great idea!!

That’s actually the main reason I couldn’t come up with a complete character, I couldn’t figure out how the skill trees would work.

I think that there would typically be two purposes for blinking: to close the distance on foes, or to reach hard-to-get areas and set up shop sniping. So in my mind the three trees would focus on:

  1. Action skill improvement
  2. Close-range combat (skills that improve melee as well as functionality with shotguns and SMGs)
  3. Long-range combat (skills that focus on functionality with sniper and assault rifles)

There would, of course, also be your generic boosts sprinkled in there as well.

That exact concept of “Blink” was the main “Action Skill” in the first Dishonored game, like exactly.
